    I do not know how to buy fish other than the drive thru at LJS. icon_redface.gif The one time I bought it for my DD and made it the smell was not pleasant and the meat was a gray color instead of white. I have no clue what to do with it other than grill it and when I did that it fell apart in chunks. icon_rolleyes.gif icon_cry.gif

    Would like to try again....any suggestions for recipes that would be simple to make and no terrible fishy taste or smell?

    Fish should not smell fishy. Best place to buy it is a specialty market if you are inland. In Seattle they have a market that brings in fish daily, you may want to look around for something like that.

    White fish tends to me milder in flavor. Try try flounder or tilapia. My favorite is halibut. For freshwater fish, Walleye.

    How you cook depends on what you want. Here are some ideas:
    Fried- batter coated, served with tarter sauce or malt vinegar try Long John Silver's Fish Batter recipe #42780
    or Simple Batter for Fish or Veggies recipe #93428

    Poached- cooked in liquid, stays moist and flavorful, try Poached Fish recipe #39264 or Beer poached Halibut recipe #39941

    Other ways vary a lot, but I like Halibut with Garlic Mayonnaise-Parmesan Topping recipe #88350 and Salmon with Honey and Mustard Glaze recipe #67742

    Hope you find something you like!

    One way to rid fish of the fishy smell as weird as this is going to sound is soak it in milk for 1/2 hour. Fish should not smell really fishy but there will be a faint odor and thats the way it should be .... faint lol
    We love fish and if its going to be grilled try to use a filet that has skin on it.. no need to turn it over just close the grill top. Fish that lends itself nicely to grill are salmon, swordfish and halibut our faves can ya tell ??? I have never soaked any of these in milk but I do soak catfish. Well good luck !!

    As kids we were taught to soak catfish in milk to "pull the mud" out of the fish, the thought being that the fish ate dirt off the bottom of the river. Not sure how true it is tho.
    (and I love halibut!)
